La Liga giants Barcelona have had a forgettable start to the season and have already lost two of their matches. The defeats are even harder to understand because they had already spent a lot of amount in the transfer window to try and make a team which could win both the domestic league as well as the Champions League. Now, reports are adding that Barcelona are thinking of the future and are even planning to sign Chelsea striker Willian on a free transfer deal next year.
According to a report carried by Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are keen on drafting in Willian in their team. They are more than hopeful that they would be able to grab him in their team for a free transfer.
Notably, Barcelona have been interested in Willian ever since he was part of the Shakhtar Donetsk and they may finally be able to get him in the team for the next season.
The Chelsea forward will be left without a contract next summer and the Blues have still not offered him a new contract yet. This allows him to sign a pre-contract with the club of his choice in January 2020. However, here comes the twist in the tale. Serie A giants Juventus are also reportedly interested in drafting in Willian.
Barca are also linked with a possible move for Napoli player Fabian Ruiz. Here again, they might be facing competition as Real Madrid are also interested in roping him in. Moreover, their interest in Neymar Jr, their former player, has not subsided yet and they continue to be linked with him after their attempts of roping him in throughout the summer bore no fruits.
